      it has been noted that too many Members are posting messages in the General Chat area instead of the correct Forums. Any messages posted in the General Chat area that are not General Chat will be deleted without warning and offenders may recieve warning points if repeated instances are seen from that Member. There are plenty of different Club areas that encompass 99% of Ford related posts, please select and use the correct one. If anyone is not sure of which area to post something then feel free to P/M myself or other Senior Staff for guidance. The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

  1. Hey. I need your advice for updating the PCM module in a FORD FOCUS 1.6 115hp (2008 model/facelift) friend of mine . Specifically we want to enable the cruise control in pcm .The PCM type is SIM28/29 . Because i am not 100% sure what is the right steps please correct if you mention something wrong/missing.....: 1) PCM module/Procedures/Page 2 -> Read firmware from PCM to BIN file (and save it in case of goes something wrong) 2) PCM module/Configuration -> Integrated Speed control (check in this option) 3) PCM module/Procedures/Page 2 -> Save firmware in PHF/BIN file 4) PCM module/Procedures/Page 2 -> Load firmware ( the one from step 3) from PHF/BIN file 5) PCM module/Procedures/Page 2 -> Save firmware to PCM.... Thanks
  2. For the same reasons (too expensive) I am thinking also to buy the FoCOM VCM for register myself the keys.Can you send to me also more info ?
  3. I have activated the CC in my C-MAX pre-facelift model at 2011 summer. The harness and the steering wheel put by me. The activation in 3 items (HEC,GEM,PCM) were done by FORD service .At that time i did not know ELM327/ELMConfig.... I think that only FORD IDS program can read/write PCM module until know. The cost of £90 is high.... ( required 5 minutes to enable CC in PCM )
  4. In the GEM -> "Windows heating auto switch on" (page 2) is for both front - back screens ;
  5. Good afternoon from Greece. I modified the adapter (per page 1 instructions ) and with ELMConfig i enable the autolock, instant concumption in my C-MAX pre-facelift model. Also i disable some features than previously were enabled by mistake with FORD IDS when were trying to enable cruice control. Note : i use ELMConfig version. (the previous one) . I have not test 0.2.3 yet....
  6. Same for me . Even i am signed in, i have no permission for download.....
  7. The same situation is valid for me too. ;) Thanks primary to civil-zz and the all the other in this forum and in the ffclub.ru forum , i successfully enable autolock and instant fuel in my C-MAX mk2 .When we had tried in Official Ford service to enable them , we did not succeed with IDS. Now trying to replace my instrument cluster with the instrument cluster from facelift model......
  8. Yes this is the correct. I have bought my adapter from this store. Preee ,what is the temperature that the heated front window screen activated ; What are the GEM options : Battery backed sounder , RKE locking allowed .......run/start position ,S389_CONF ; Thanks
  9. In ELMconfig program in GEM section , the options "Slam double locking" & "Slam central locking" means disable....;
  10. mrmetallica , what do you mean....; Until the ELM327 received, i try to find out all the possible features that can be enable in my car (C-MAX 1.6 trend) Until now only the autolock and instant fuel are 99% sure that can be enable.May be the double lock if isn't required extra lock equipement..... Do you know any other feature ; Thanks
  11. Hi . When i have to change the Bus mode (High -> Medium or Medium -> High) should i remove the adapter from the car diagnostic port or just altering the button while the adapter is in use ;
  12. nuno8210 thanks for your support. Ι'm thinking to use the FDS program. You are right , is the most easy one. Now waiting the ELM327 tool to arrive..... Also many thanks to Preee , Psyence, civil-zz for the great work!!!!!!!!
  13. Just finish the reading of 42 pages and checking the ELMconfig program. To enable the auto lock, the feature must be checked in the GEM / PAGE 2 -> Autolocking enable by customer . Am i correct ; I can not find the feature for enable instant fuel consumption display......
  14. nuno8210, thanks for your info. I just bought the ELM327 tool .
  15. Hello from Greece. I'm thinking to order the ELM327 car diagnostic reader tool for enable in my C-MAX the instant fuel consumption & auto lock but i have some doubts about using the diagnostic tool.... 1)The cable modification is really necessary ; If the ELM327 tool used as received (from the buyer) the programming options are fewer; 2) The "PuTTy" program is required for configuring ELM327 in the win XP also ; 3) Which of the 2 (ELM-FF2 - ELMconfig) programs should use to enable instant fuel consumption & auto lock features; What is the difference between them ; Thanks in advance for your help
